energy and the most urgent for the president, gun control. joining us now, jim vandenhike. so we got done with the first term. bipartisanship towards the end, incredible. any reason why that will change? >> zero. >> okay. >> i would love to be optimistic. i think we should be slamming the blacken ambers they serve up here as you think about the next four years. largely because we already saw in the last two months in the lame duck how the next two years will unfold. and that is a republican congress and a zero interest in doing the obama agenda and a president who has zero interest in the republican agenda. i look at the first 100 days as the 100 days from hell. he has to deal with sequestration, whether or not we lift the debt limit and whether we continue to fund the government at the current spending levels. then he's going to try to do gun control. you look broadly and say something's changed with the public. i think that's true. you see some movement towards more support for gun control. >> let's talk specifics. let's go through each of these as we go throughout the next four years.

playbook," david o. russell. up next, jim vandehei with the top stories in the "politico playbook." first, the latest on the frigid temperatures outside. bill karins with a check on the forecast. >> i think, mika, get to day two or three, your body gets used to it. the winds around as bad as yesterday. first things first, look out the window down through virginia, i'm sure the ground is covered. you got some snow last night. only picked up about a dusting to two inches in most areas. coastal maryland picked up as much as three or four. it's just about over with. hopefully the sidewalks will brush off easily. it's a light, fluffy snow. give yourself a little extra time. now for those temperatures. the cold spots continue to be northern new england and northern portions of wisconsin and minnesota. the icebox of america, international falls this morning, it is minus 33 degrees. that's without any wind whatsoever. now when we factor in the windchills, it's a little bit breezy around chicago and green bay. that's why it feels so bitterly cold for you. and northern new england, windchills are a
england 28-13 to win the afc title game. earlier, frank gore had two touchdown as jim harbaugh staged the biggest come back victory ever in an nfc championship game, 28-24 over atlanta. and niners fans in san francisco went wild. the ravens and 49ers will go head-to-head in new orleans in two weeks on february 3rd. it is the first time two brothers will coach against each other in a super bowl. >>> now their father, jack harbaugh, played one year of professional ball with the afl's new york titans back in 1961. after his two sons jim and john were born, jack began a long coaching career in high school and college. >>> now to college basketball, second ranked indiana's cody zeller scored 21 points as the hoosiers edged northwestern 67-59. indiana could become number one this week because louisville lost to syracuse saturday. >>> check out this video. surfers rode waves between 20 and 30 feet high in california in the famed mavericks invitational surf contest in half moon bay south of san francisco. the winner, 43-year-old peter mel from santa cruz. congratulations. >>> and now for anot
in office. nbc's jim maceda is live in tel aviv. good morning. assuming priedictioning are correct and he wins, what effect could that have on israel's policies? >> reporter: hi to you, mara. well, about 15%, keep in mind, of israelis are saying that they're still undecided going into today's voting booth, so this is not a done deal. but all indications are that netanyahu's right-wing party with a second partner party will win a third term but with fewer seats, maybe eight to ten fewer seats in parliament. the biggest question is who does he choose in a coalition to govern with? the smart money is on him lining up with even more hard-line parties to his right which, of course, is the nightmare scenario for palestinians. or he could surprise everyone and team up with a more centrist bloc, and that would probably give him more wiggle room, at least that's what the analysts are saying, to deal with the stalled peace talks and what israelis are calling a tanking economy. and the horse trading begins as early as tomorrow morning. mara? >> and let's turn, if we can, to elsewhere in the region t
of the new group will be a man named jim messina. he is not exactly a political lightweight. his last job was in fact running president obama's 2012 reelection campaign. to have jim messina in charge of this thing means this is not a place where emeritus your friends to keep them on the payroll. this is something that is going to be an active operation with some of the biggest guns in politics at the helm of it. democrats are turning their brightest lights from the two successful campaigns of this president into a political operation that will operate throughout president obama's second term. nobody has any idea what that is going to be like or how that is going to work, because nobody has ever done this before in american politics. joining us now to talk about the inauguration and this development in our politics is dan rather, the anchor and managing editor of access reports on tv. happy inauguration day. thank you for joining us. >> happy inauguration day to you, and what a job you have done, rachel, and what a day for the country. one can be blase about a lot. but we can't be blase ab
. i haut this was an incredible moment when jim demint is asked about the comments that colin powell made about a dark vein of intolerance, the racism within the republican party, and also republican comments on legitimate rape and this is how jim demint, who is now president or incoming president of the heritage foundation, presumably a leading voice among conservatives, this is his answer. >> do you regret some of the comments about abortion, about rape. again, what colin powell were vailed racist comments from the party. >> david, the fact that we are losing over 3,000 unborn children a day is an important issue, but republicans, or conservatives, should not engage in a debate about exceptions for abortion when the other side will not even agree that we have a real people, a real human being. >> just quickly summarizing that, are you worried about racism in the party or -- answer, there are 3,000 abortions every day. >> it is a fascinating example of where the republican party does and doesn't seem to be. the contrast between four years ago and now is so striking, as you said, at
committee, and republican congressman from iowa, jim nussle. thank you, everyone, for coming on the program. doug, to you first. shake ups, nothing too unexpected here, denis mcdonough as chief of staff. what does this mean for the obama white house in the second term? these folks have been through the ringer a few times. not like dick morris type of changes. what does this mane for the obama white house? >> these are all people that the president trusts. they have been with him for a while. denis mcdonough is a key national security adviser, dan pfeiffer has been with the president since the campaign. jen palmieri is a very well-respected communications strategist around here. i think, really, it's an opportunity, again, that the president made clear in his inauguration speech, he really wants washington to act more. and i think he's got the people around him to help make that a reality. but they're trusted folks, they're talented, and i don't think -- i think he's going to be well served by them. >> david, i want to get into these fiscal triple threat that we have here, which kelly can sp
of staff and bad. some of the best. jim bakker, ken duberstein, leon panetta in times of trouble. >> howard baker certainly rescuing the ronald reagan second term from don regan, a bad chief of staff by all accounts. what is the pluses and minuses of denis mcdonough. he knows the president so well, and at the same time. >> i think it's indicated in his second term he wants the people who he is closest to to run things. i think that trust and loyalty are two of the big factors here. >> i want to talk to you about your big interview and the republican party coming up with paul ryan on "meet the press." there is breaking news also today. pete williams, the appeals court in d.c., the court right below the supreme court has delivered a big setback to the president on recessed appointments, and these are big recess appointments. sdhoo these are the controversial ones the president made a year ago to richard coregray to run the new consumer protection board and for three people to be on the national labor relations board. all were recess appointments. you may remember this big fight between the pr

an exchange when david gregory and senator jim demint on this topic of the president's vision versus that of republicans. listen to this, professor peterson. >> that's something paul ryan said. he said last year the country will choose what happens in 2013. and they did. so aren't we past the point of two different visions and choosing? >> i don't think the country has chosen that. >> so, professor peterson, the election went 51% to 47% with the president. 323 electoral college votes to 206. but according to jim demint, that didn't decide anything, right? >> well, this is the kind of logic of the republican party we've been wrestling with over the last several years. former senator demint is moving more into policy and lobbying and trying to influence the public discourse and that's probably a good place for him to live and breathe in. >> he ought to be attached to reality surely. >> well, as you know, and as we have chronicled on this show and others on this network, reality is not the basis by which those on the far right always sort of draw their conclusions and create their ideas
-year high. but what's ahead? joining me now is economic policy correspondent for "the washington post," jim tankersley. good morning. >> good morning, chris. >> let's look at what tim geithner did. took a lead on revamping the financial rules. negotiated with congressional leaders on the budget and raising the debt limit. oversaw the t.a.r.p. bailout of companies that included citigroup, general motors. a headline from "the washington post" posts, tim geithner's legacy, an unpopular bailout that helped save the economy. is he leaving a much stronger economy than he came in with? >> well, assuredly, the economy is much better today than it was when tim geithner and barack obama first took office. i think geithner's legacy is in particular going to be linked very much with the financial system. when they came in, we were in this free-fall and the financial crisis and the great recession and geithner really was the head of the administration's efforts to stabilize things. and they did. the system stabilized. we did not have another great depression. and tim geithner gets a lot of credit for th
: and are women ready for combat? just ask tammy duckworth. >> well, i didn't lose my legs in a bar fight. >> jim will join the conversation coming up a little later on "morning joe." >>> finally, what does it take to please the stock market these days? turns out quite a bit. apple, get this they released earnings yesterday. despite racking up a $13 billion profit and selling almost 30% more iphone ands nearly 50% more ipads, the company's stock fell 11%. actually, apple stock has dropped off the table since reaching the high of $705 in september. now close to $500 a share. still, apple profits continue to grow. besides, the company has just an astounding amount of cash on hand, $137 billion in cash. you want to know how much money that is? well, it could buy every team in the nba ten times over. 14 billion plus for the nba. they can play the entire gdp of iraq and afghanistan. or, how about this, buy 54 empire state buildings, at $2.5 billion a pop. if they stacked them on top of each other, that pile would be 15 miles high. why that's relevant to you this morning? we have no idea why. we though
into an organizing outfit now called organizing for action, that jim messina and others will be in charge of. so i think he is aiming for those far away fences for things you would like to see him do, chris, but it's going to happen. not just if he wants to do it, but if he can mobilize enough political support to try to get over some of that republican obstructionism. >> joan, the same question. did you see the beef today? terms of substantive accomplishments worthy of a second term? >> i did, chris. it was a soaring speech. it was an inspiring speech. but it was also as david said practical nuts and bolts, talking about the highway system, talking about we don't want people standing in line for hours to vote. talking about we're not going to make a false choice between investing in our children and investing in our seniors. i know they're talking. i'm very excited that they're talk about how to expand prekindergarten programs to more kids. in our country, we have this horrible situation where the rich get richer in every way. so affluent kids, upper middle class kids absolutely go to preschool a
, but we are lucky to cover such occasions, even though we sometimes screw them up. jim, call me. have a great evening. >> today was the day republicans have been waiting for, today, the day they could finally prove their conspiracy theory about how president obama and susan rice and hillary clinton conspired to hide the truth from the american people. all they had to do was get hillary clinton to crack under the awesome pressure of testifying to congress. something she actually mastered 20 years ago. >> capitol hill, locust of dysfunction, hall of smoke and mirrors. >> secretary clinton will face answers that republicans have wanted to ask for months. >> is the u.s. involved with transferring weapons to turkey? >> to turkey. >> they were just throwing everything against the wall. >> we were misled. >> we were not given a clear picture. >> no one has been held accountable. >> had i been president at the time. >> senator rand paul. >> i would have relieved you of your post. >> it was a pukefest. >> i have said many times i took responsibility. >> what difference at this point does it ma
we're to blame for everybody. >> jim demint's favorite senator. dn look good today. thank you very much. we'll be right back. i wasn't being sarcastic. you're great. this is "hardball," the place for politics. this is flo. i need you. i feel so alone. but you're not alone. i knew you'd come. like i could stay away. you know i can't do this without you. you'll never have to. you're always there for me. shh! i'll get you a rental car. i could also use an umbrella. fall in love with progressive's claims service. >>> this was president obama's fourth swearing in ceremony. president obama took the fourth oath of office. they had to do it a second time in 2009 because justice roberts botched the language on the first attempt. but you know what that say, fourth time is a charm. >> i, barack obama do solemnly swear that i will faithly execute the office of the president of the united states. >> republicans were less than elated on inauguration day. it was another reminder that the election didn't go go their way. >> obama's inaugural speech, swing and a miss. >> where was the debt? where w
-americans, but i think for the country, too, to begin to dismantle some jim crow. >> and they came back and said no way. >> yeah, yeah. >> these guys represent that endless journey that i think this country has been on from its founding, and that is, you know, people, however they got here, making the most of the opportunities that they have in front of them, and that's what these airmen did. you know, they were risk takers of a different sort. they weren't highfalutin in business, but they were highfalutin in different parts of our society that were just as important. i think to connect this bridge to this president taking politics so completely out of it is so important for a 7-year-old or a 15-year-old african-american male, particularly when we see so many of those young men looking down the road and not seeing themselves as a future tuskegee airmen or future president, but instead are right now sitting in the baltimore detention center or otherwise not regarded as a value to our community, and i think that's something that i hope the president in some way addresses a little bit more fundame
, and actually jim cooper, a blue dog member of the democratic coalition of tennessee introduced this original. that's why they feel if they can hit the 217 number they'll get more democrats to support this. the idea is, once this passes the house, the debt limit would be extended to may 19th and possibly worked on afterwards, but if the senate does not come up with a budget by april 17th, any salaries would go into an escrow account until 2014. it's not really no budget, no pay, it's just no budget, you'll get your money later, because we legally have to give it to you. in the senate, those guys are straight cash. i don't think a lot of them are worrying too much if they lost their government pay. >> luke russert with the phrase of the day, those guys in the senate are straight cash. i have to introduce our friend joining the panel now, fresh from a stalled amtrak train in new jersey, msnbc contributor and "the huffington post" political editor sam stein. >> great to be here. i was loving the amtrak train, but this is better. >> magical place, my friend. >> what were we talking about? >> i'll

of a political group attached to the president. loosely run by his campaign chair, jim mesina. just on friday they put out talking points even giving individuals a sample script if they wanted to call their congress members to tell them they were looking for action on the issue of guns as well. h is really one way the president is hoping to try to effectively execute new change in the course of the next several months and in this second term. >> meanwhile, we have the first major policy speech being given tomorrow on immigration from las vegas. we have the talk of this bipartisan deal that's been reached within the senate. the immigration 8. explain to all of us, is there enough oxygen in washington, d.c., right now to have a gun control debate on the side of an immigration reform debate? does one extinguish the other? >> reporter: well, the white house is convinced that there is. i think it seems more likely, at least to those in washington, that the immigration issue is one that could be solved more quickly. especially given the headlines being made today about that bipartisan group of sena
-nothings or the jim crow or whatever you want to call them, they're always let's have it the way it used to be. it never was for anybody. they always think it was better in the past. they were torys and then know-nothings and then jim crows and the gay front. i think that fight is one of the fastest fights eve ever seen in american history. that fight has moved in my recent lifetime dramatically, and i think what he said there about kids many time to give the poor kids in appalachiana and the poor kids in detroit -- that's what he was talking about -- and the suburban kids living up in newtown, what do you want for those kids? you want to give them economic opportunity, educations. you want to get them away from crime-ridden cities and away from crazy people with guns. you want to do all that. that's a very inclusive hope for everybody. >> it's very inclusive, and if you look at the crowd today, you could just tell it wasn't elite america. it was wage earners. it was the middle class that was out there. it was a minority representation, which was very strong. i'm excited about the tuskegee air
playbook with jim. first, bill karins is here with a check on the forecast. bill. >> mika this crowd, once again, you won't believe how long this line is. so many wonderful people out here. you came all the way from the bahamas, and you did it four years ago too. >> i did it four years ago. >> very impressive. from virginia maryland. you two both work in the navy. you're from? >> california. >> and you're from? >> ohio. i worked on the campaign. >> both times or just the last year? >> just this last year. >> good job. i think it worked. >> a little bit. >> we'll have to work on getting you a better spot in line. let's talk about your forecast as we go throughout this day today for the inauguration. a beautiful weekend here in d.c. temperatures they're not bad. right now we're at 33. windchills in the 20s. it will be similar as we go throughout the noon hour for the swearing in ceremony. the forecast will call for colder temperatures as the day goes on especially later on tonight. maybe a few snow showers or two. tomorrow morning i'll have a jacket, hat, and gloves on. it'll be
of the reasons this organizing for action, jim messina's full-time job is trying to get the union's in line, but it's going to be hard. it's hard on the democratic side. we're not even talking about the difficulty on the republican side getting it through the house. this is a senate democratic problem. >> so the republicans in the house, in effect, could stare at harry reid's senate and say okay, immigration reform, that's great. you guys pass it. >> say bring it. >> yeah, bring it. gun control, great. you guys pass it, we'll look at it. gay marriage, if you want to nationalize it, go ahead. you guys pass it. we'll look -- i mean, they could do this on every one of the president's top priorities. and chances are good the president's top priorities, as stated today, wouldn't pass the democratic senate. >> i think a lot of them would not. >> that's fascinating. jeff, thank you for being here. and know this. this time next year, the university of alabama will have passed your cornhuskers and actually won 4 out of 5 national championships. >> i think you're right. >> i was actually grabbed by a
